Match has been around for more than two decades, making it the most established dating site in the industry.
Those clouds that you’re staring up at together, picking out cute shapes Oh, frabjous day, so much to learn and so little time!
And thus, with our list of reasons why nerd dating is so wonderful completed, it is time for us to part ways, as Gandalf tragically parted with the Fellowship in the Mines of Moria (retrospective spoiler alert).
Well then, in the interest of ironing out any potential misunderstandings, let us consult that dusty old grimoire, the Oxford English dictionary.
